carolina, tennessee, texas, wisconsin. all five states all controlled by republican legislatures have made it harder for citizens to vote. in south carolina's case, the justice department's actually stepped in to block the new voter i.d. law. they say it will suppress voter turnout among minorities. according to the doj, 82,000 minority citizens in south carolina are registered to vote but lack the kind of identification the new law requires. these voters are nearly 20% more likely to be disenfranchised by this change than are white voters. now, the department of justice can do this. it can step in in south carolina's new law because of the voting rights act of 1965. under section 5 of the voting rights act, certain states, states with an egregious history of legalized racial discrimination and suppressing the my tinority vote, those sta must get something called preclearance. they're going to significantly alter their election laws. the department of justice has to sign off on it. south carolina is one of those states. kansas isn't. south carolina's republican governor, nickki haley, vowe
